This was tricky to get our dog into, since she's a squirmy terrier. She is on the larger end of the size guidelines and the velcro just fit. One size larger might have fit better, but the sleeves are just right and would have been too long if I had gone up a size. She was very unhappy until I removed the hood and it took her a while to get used to walking in it, but she seemed more comfortable as our walk progressed. While checking the velcro closure during our walk, I noticed that the velcro strips had sharp corners near her skin, so I rounded them off with small scissors to prevent irritation. It hasn't been cold enough since to see if this made a difference. I bought the parka for the better leg and belly coverage to minimize "snowballs" stuck in her fur, when we have to put her in the kitchen sink and melt them off with the sprayer. It is very cute, but our rural neighbors are going to label me the "crazy dog lady". Don't even want to think what they'll be saying when her dad walks her. ;-)
The small size is larger than expected. I had previously purchased a jacket from a pet store in extra small and it was too small so I got the small size. I have a chihuahua mix, he weighs 5-6 pounds and your size small is larger than expected.
I ordered a size Medium for my 20 lb boston, it just barely fit her so this runs small. Overall it's decent quality, the Velcro comes undone easily so I may add snaps to it to make it more durable. It's great for the price. Keeps my dog warm when it's freezing, she seems to love it. So glad that it goes around and covers her belly, that was an important feature that most dog coats don't have.
The quality is great. Keeps my shih Tzu toasty warm in the cold weather..Easy to put on her and the Velcro closing is a snap.. The only downside was that the medium was to big and the small is not quite as long as I would like but the rest fits great. very satisfied with Overstocks service. would definitely recommend product and overstock..com
I really like this jacket. It is cute and keeps my puppy warm. It is a bit smaller in length than her Pet Life Designer Patterned Removable Hood Cotton Pet Sweat Jacket. She has a litter extra bulk in her chest so the velcro doesn't always stay(EX Running or Playing Around)
